Broome Museum Sailmaker’s Shed

ADDRESS: 71 Robinson Street, Broome, WA

AWARDS: Awarded a commendation in the 2016 WA Heritage Awards in the category ‘Interpretation Project’

PROJECT: A heritage-listed site, the restored Sailmaker’s Shed has been recognised with both a WA Heritage Award and a UNESCO Honourable Mention. Creative Spaces were commissioned to create an interactive museum experience that honoured Charles Bagge, who built and operated out of the shed until 1917, and the influence he had on local life and industry. To achieve this, we used sound, audio visual and physical representations, as well as a number of interpretive panels and interactive displays. A number of custom-designed pieces of furniture housed both objects and interpretation, all specifically designed to withstand the conditions within the shed.

COMPLETED: July 2015
